note that in a number of their proposals -- i thought steny hoyer did a great job of putting forward the proposals of the president and the specificity that the president had outlined which is about if you put it on a fwraff would be like this -- graph would be like this and then the republican's proposal's like this. it's a difficult time for the republicans, and we want to provide them with every opportunity that they can -- to save -- not only save face but to come up something which they can do reasonably which is why tim's proposal that everybody agrees with that there be a $250,000 tax cut that this be preserved for everybody. 100% of the people will receive that. not 98%. 100% of the people will received that. so why not go forward with that when we can all agree on it? here's the president's proposal. now it's so small, it's in small print because it's so detailed and so specific. there are the republican proposals. now -- >> i just want to point out i can read that. >> so that's our concern. i don't know if the other leaders wanted to -- >> i'll just mention one quic

that, of course, the speaker. now, the house minority leader, steny hoyer, took to the floor just after the speaker did, and he called speaker boehner's remarks that we just listened to, quote: disappointing. he says republicans are not explaining to the american people how they want to pay for the spending cuts that they are insisting on and that speaker boehner has given the american people no confidence that their taxes will not go up on january 1st. as we all know, as we go over the cliff, all of the bush era tax cuts will expire at midnight on december 31st. so the negotiations continue, we'll keep you posted. jenna: well, right now the latest on the manhunt for suspects in a brazen murder on the streets of midtown manhattan at a time when new york is full of holiday tourists. police just releasing a mug shot of the victim who they identify as 31-year-old brandon woodard. but investigators are saying very little else about the case. wnyw's robert moses has the latest from from the scene. >> reporter: the shooting happened outside the st. thomas choir school. police continue t

smoke out, that was her quote, smoke out republicans and steny hoyer himself mentioned that it was a ploy. so, i think they were trying to get republicans to agree to the millionaire tax increase and then see how far it will move even more. and it's politics, david. david: yeah, yeah. >> by the way the millionaire tax, only, it would basically raise money to cover eight days of government spending, but you know, david and adam, we've had the letter from nancy pelosi. do you really believe it was a ploy to smoke out the republicans? because nancy pelosi in her letter is equating millionaires to big oil, special interest and corporations. why doesn't the g.o.p. capitalize on that they really want middle class tax hikes when they're talking about raising taxes on the 250,000 plus crowd >> well, i think speaker boehner and the republicans in the house would be able to get some democrats support for the millionaire tax increase which i don't think they did enough of and they had to call off that vote as we all know on that plan. but some democrats would support something like that, but

their millionaire and billionaire friends. taking hostage the people of america. you have steny hoyer saying that republicans want to take children hostage and threatened to shoot them. this is vilifying republicans and it has been incredibly effective. in the short term, absolutely, the president is set to take advantage of this. tax increases, massive tax reductions to the military. republicans really stand and the notion is appalling about who wins, but the republicans win because the economy is going to go out yet another fiscal cliff. george w. bush is not the president. obama is the president, he is not putting forth proposals to work with republicans. he will have to take ownership of this. they need to come up with a cohesive message about real economic growth and shrinking the size of government. they don't have a message and that is going to be the big question about who wins and long-run. jon: if we go over the cliff, i mean, everyone's paycheck, just about -- come january 1, it will be shrunk because government is going to be taking a much bigger chunk out of it. that will infuri
